For the price, this product is a fantastic value. Easy to use and has most of the features we need without all of the unnecessary functions that some other providers have added to their platforms.

Cons
UX seems boring and outdated. Cannot set viewing restriction for single file.

MS

Few cons, but select users have had trouble receiving Firmex automated emails due to spam filters.

DH

Douglas H.

Some of the features could be less of a hunt-and-find. Adding Users and editing their information with permissions can be hard to find sometimes.

Simple, yet valuable

Reviewed 2 years ago

I've used Firmex DVR on many projects and it's much easier to use than other solutions. Data rooms requiring training will reduce the utilization by the project team.

Pros

Firmex VDR is easy to use. It offers the ability to toggle quickly between projects, has an intuitive folder structure, and allows for easy uploading and viewing of documents.

Cons

Having an embedded version control option would be valuable, with an easy way to distinguish between drafts and final versions of documents.

Vendor response

Hi Ian, Thanks for the review! With regard to Firmex having an embedded version control option, you'll be glad to know that we have one. Here's a quick summary of our versioning and document status options: Firmex's versioning feature is built-in to our system. You can choose to upload a new document, or a new version of a document. You and your team can always access the version history, while...

Due Diligence Usage

Reviewed 4 months ago

Overall positive experience, hit some snags but CSRs have been quite helpful

Pros

Ease of use, continuous updates, easy to teach clients to use

Cons

importing and exporting documents can be problematic (e.g. files too large, titles too long)

Vendor response

Stephanie, thank you so much for your review and feedback. Although we don't have a definitive maximum upload size, if issues are experienced we advise keeping larger uploads between 5-10GB, and maintaining single-files under 5GB. We also recommend uploading directly from your local computer rather than a network drive, as the latter will be much slower depending on your network settings. In terms...

Austin Porter - Review

Reviewed 7 months ago
Pros

Easy user interface allows non-familiar teams to upload information. Management teams are able to collaborate with the sell side group to upload information. Much easier to use than Dropbox.

Cons

Item limits per page. (ie. only being able to see 200 files per page when looking at all files

Vendor response

Austin, thanks for the feedback and taking the time to review Firmex. Our users find that the 200 limit is more then enough file names within a page before it becomes difficult to navigate through. We would love to know if you are seeing this available with other providers you use or what the optimal number of items per page would be. James - Director of M&A Coverage
